What's Happening at Triad Ladder of Hope these days?
First Annual (encore) RIDE AGAINST TRAFFICK
Check out our Facebook page for photos from the event!
We had a great time this weekend Riding Against Traffick through the beautiful countryside of Rowan and Stanley counties in North Carolina. 17 motorcycles joined us this time - almost triple the amount we had for our inaugural ride in the fall! We had a sheriff's escort from Tilley's Harley Davidson in Salisbury through town and then we headed out to Morrow Mountain State Park (part of the Uwharrie National Forest). It was a gorgeous day and everyone commented on what a beautiful ride it was.
After the ride, we all gathered back at Tilley's to chow down on hotdogs, chili and slaw along with raffle giveaways and 50/50 winners. These awesome bikers donated their winnings back to the cause and we were able to auction them off to raise even more money! Without the official count complete yet, we can say we raised just about $1,000 from this event. To all who have contributed, we thank you from the bottom of our hearts. YOU are making a difference in a few of our dear friends' lives with your support! We are excited thinking about organizing the next RIDE - and we've had quite a few requests already!

2nd Annual TLH Human Trafficking Awareness Gala
January 30, 2016
Almost 100 supporters from Charlotte to High Point joined us for this Winter themed event held at the historic Rowan Museum in downtown Salisbury. Everyone enjoyed music by local artists Dana & Pam Bryan of Center City Chapel in Charlotte. Dana is the Pastor at CCC and a classical Baritone (wow! can this man sing), and has been serving in full time ministry for almost 40 years in the U.S. and Canada. His wife Pam, a master pianist who has written and performed her own arrangements, graced us with her master skills at the piano throughout dinner, which was catered and beautifully presented by Sue Choate. Our energetic and captivating keynote speaker this year was Anna Malika. You couldn't help but fall in love with this gal. She had us laughing despite the dark and shocking message. Anna, who refers to herself as an overcomer, is an internationally recognized motivational speaker, and a policy advocate in the movement to end human trafficking. Check out this inspiring woman at www.annamalika.com!
We purposefully kept this event a bit smaller this year, but that didn't mean that the support was any less significant. We are blessed to say that we raised more money than last year's event (our first ever) toward our fight for justice against this crime. Thank you to all who came out and supported us! We hope to see you next year for the 3rd ANNUAL AWARENESS GALA!

1st Annual TLH Human Trafficking Awareness Gala

Unmasking Human Trafficking
Things are not always what they seem...
Let’s unmask the truth behind modern day slavery!
More than 165 supporters from Charlotte to High Point joined us for this masquerade-themed event held at the historic Rowan Museum in downtown Salisbury. There were some great silent auction items won, everyone enjoyed music by NC contemporary Christian artist Cindy Johnson, and we feasted on a delicious dinner catered by Buttercup Cafe in Denton. Our enlightening key note speaker was Juanita Miller, retired Victim Assistance Coordinator at the FBI. We also heard from Dr. Jim Duncan about local ways to get involved in the FIGHT (Free Individuals Gripped by Human Trafficking) against this heinous crime. The most captivating part of the evening was the emotional testimonies from four lovely ladies, survivors of human trafficking. Not sure there was a dry eye in the house.
If you missed this event, you definitely missed out!! Please let us know if you would like to be kept informed of future TLH events and if you would like more information on how you can get involved in this fight with us.
